Pair of mergansers gliding by my position...north end of Mitkof Island, Petersburg, Alaska.
This shot was taken in deep shadows. I often hike considerable distances to my "spots". Usually I preset the camera well before taking a position. I did not do it this time....took a position behind a log close to the high tide mark and immediately found myself in heavy action....mergansers, gulls, various other ducks, seals, etc. About two hundred exposures later I finally took a close look and found that I was at 3200 ISO. Should have held the ISO at 2000 or lower. Great fun anyway.
